Singer-Songwriter born and raised in Southern California. I play drums and guitar and just about anything I can get my hands on. During the mid 80s early 90s my band MANTIS was actively involved in the LA music scene playing our own brand of Animated Rock. In the years that followed I produced the album "Mad the Swine," recorded a single featuring a children's choir, and released an 'extended play' CD of Halloween music. "As a composer, I like to draw inspiration from all music genres and incorporate those elements into the Rock Spectrum." I currently play a Yamaha DTXexplorer electronic drum kit and do most my recording/mixing using GarageBand '11 Version 6.0.5 for Mac.
